Henri Chopin: Avant-garde pioneer of sound poetry [Obituary] / Acquaviva, Frederic; Sackner RK; Sackner MA; Conz F., 2008

 Item
Identifier: CC-47601-68610
Scope and Contents Henri Chopin Avant-garde pioneer of sound poetry Frédéric Acquaviva Tuesday February 5, 2008 The Guardian: "Towards the end of the second world war, Henri Chopin, who has died aged 85, escaped from a forced labour camp in Olomouc, in what is now the Czech Republic, after it had been bombed. He then spent time with the advancing Red Army, until, recaptured by the Germans, he and inmates of concentration and extermination camps were sent west on a Nazi "death march." Thousands died on those journeys and it was then that he listened to the voices of his fellow marchers, sounds which would infuse his work for the rest of his life.

Hodibis Potax - Poetry Anthology / Oeuvres poetiques / Kac, Eduardo ; Sackner RK ; Sackner MA., 2007

 Item
Identifier: CC-59817-10002869
Scope and Contents On page 52 and 53 a hologram "Adrift" (1991) by Kac is acknowledged and illustrated to be in the collection of the Sackner Archive. In another publication Kac has described this work, "Adrift is composed basically of seven words that dissolve in space and into each other as the viewer reads them. In one case, the reader may be invited to start reading from the letter which is further away from him or her. In another case, the letter closer to the reader could be the starting point. The letters that make the words are floating irregularly along several Z axes, except for the word 'breathe', which is integrated into the overall light field. This word is blown by an imaginary wind as its letters actually move away from their original position to dissolve the light field. The movement of the letters in this word disrupts the apparent stability of the other words."This book is divided into sections titled Holopoetry, Digital Poetry, Biopoetry and Space Poetry. -- Source of annotation:...
